The inclusion of NFC in Apple's newest iPhone and the Apple Watch is a clear indicator of where the market is heading. NXP -- both through Apple and many others -- will be a beneficiary from this movement.

I've always considered the stock to be overpriced, but I now realize the market premium is well-deserved. With 19% y/y growth in their HPMS segment, NXP has opportunities coming from every direction and is really just getting started. They are already printing cash (from operations), which they invest heavily in R&D and forward-looking projects.

Wish I had jumped in a year ago, but such is life. Outperform.

With the news that NXPi is partnering with Apple on NFC in smartphones and also Apple entering into the automobile market (NXPi is alkready there), I see huge upside for NXPi in both these areas.

Will NXP's Near Field Comunication (NFC) chip finally make its way inside an iPhone? :

MacRumors.com/2014/08/28/wired-nfc-mobile-payments/

If so, NFC has its best chance yet to become mainstream in the United States.

Although, I would also like to point out that in the long-term (20+ years), and given that the above (linked) rumors are true, another company -- Visa (V) will probably turn out to be a much bigger winner in the mobile-payment space because it has a wider "moat" and the economics of the business are far better when compared to most enterprises that contribute to the manufacture of physical technology components or products.

For example:

Even though NXPI will spend a significant portion of its income in order to develop, innovate, and constantly improve its products from one version to the next -- there's still a high probability that their competitors can do it slightly better or leap them altogether. It happens all the time.

Visa, on the other hand, is a nesesarry "middleman" who enables consumers with a mindlessly convenient way to pay for expenses. IT IS the proverbial "toll-bridge" and just as important, intrinsically, such a toll-bridge requires a relatively smaller portion of its income to be spent on its maintenance and its product innovation -- especially when compared to companies involved in the manufacture of electronics.

Basically, Visa's business model is in stark contrast when compared to a physically-manufactured-technology company such as NXPI, where changes are rapid, constant, and not easily predicted. After all, a few guys tinkering away in the comfort of their garage can displace whole industries and require relatively small amount of capital to do so.

Nonetheless, NXPI could be a huge winner in the short-term of 5 years or so, but in the long-term -- there's a relatively high probability of underperformance or failure when compared to other alleged players, such as Visa, who are likewise, allegedly, involved in the burgeoning mobile-payment-processing industry.

A key player in the Internet of Things. Will grow rapidly as IoT grows, particularly strong in automotive.

NXPI is poised to capitalize on the "wearables" sector of technology - the next big thing! With a relatively low PE ratio of 40 with regard to NXPI's future growth, this will be a $200 stock within the next 3 years.

Make the chip for chip and pin credit cards, with all the security breaches we should speed up the conversion to chip and pin
